Club Tag

Hi, we made this in our S.U. club on Thursday night. I LOVE IT!!!! Isn't this a cute idea? Thank you Rhonda!
The ribbon is the cherry cobbler seam binding from the mini. No sewing required, but Rhonda had this amazing idea. First we tied on the ribbon, then we dampened the ends with water, arranged the ruffled look and held it with a fork (yes, the eating utensil fork), and then heated that side up with fork in place using our embossing heating guns. OMG, what an amazing discovery! The ribbon just stays right in place.
She cut the tag using the two tags die with Crumb Cake paper. Ran the early espresso through the big shot with finial press folder, the Deck the Hall's dsp was cut using a 1 1/4 square punch. The Always artichoke label was punched using the new Decorative Label punch, the leaves were cut with a big shot using the little leaves sizzlits die and the bird was made using cherry cobbler card stock with the two step extra large bird punch and also ran through the finial press folder, with a little pearl for the eyes for a final touch. The peace on earth is from the Four the Holidays set. So sorry I did not order this now, but you know, I gotta stop somewhere, lol. The words were stamped with Early Espresso and everything was sponged with Early Espresso. I'm loving all the tags this year and this is one of my fav's!

What a neat idea with the fork? Where *do* people come up with these ideas? I am lovin' your tag, too. It has a vintage feel which I am always drawn to. TFS the technique!
